I think it's only now started to dawn on investors that Curtis Banks now have very limited viable acquisition opportunities of any scale left to target. They have hoovered up some low hanging fruit, but many of the remaining "full SIPP" providers are simply poor value, or hold too many non-standard, potentially toxic investments on their books that could result in significant future liabilities, in the event of multiple claims. There may be a few smaller acquisitions still to come, but CB may now have to target a platform SIPP provider to open up volume SIPP markets, but this space is congested and any acquisitions are likely to be beyond CB's current means, unless they make a call to the market or increase borrowing. They also risk spreading themselves too thin, with a lot of tricky acquisitions that can't easily be consolidated within a generic operating model, so it's not always easy to drive economies of scale. Interest earnings will also have all but fallen to zero and are unlikely to increase significantly for a while.

Been on my watchlist for a while and will stay there post these results. Peel Hunt downgrades to a HOLD; reduces price target to 280p from 360p.

Yes johnv - perhaps the big seller has finished now. Hopefully the share price will move back to the old highs.

Excellent results, but unfortunately the 2014 comparatives CBP quotes in the results announcement bear little relation to those used by ShareScope above - making it impossible to see whether any progress is better than expected. The one comparative metric that is clear is turnover. It came in at £16.99 million against the £15.91 forecast.

It would seem so, denboyz1; that's fine with me, too :-) [Source: ShareScope] Some great numbers there, and historical PEG = 0.76

Don't worry Saucepan - I think most of the holders here are the quiet, long term types who don't like to talk too much about their holdings. Having said that, this share does tick a lot of boxes and would appear to be in the right place at the right time.

New highs today and still incredibly quiet here; even the maiden dividend announced on 28 January has attracted no comment.

Just for the record here Saucepan, that I have been invested here from the 2nd breakout around 265ish. I like the company because it's unique, and as the SIPP regulation becomes tighter, most companies like L&G will find it expensive to run, so they sell them to the 3rd party. I also like the management as they cherry pick the SIPPs that give them good margin. GL

Earnings enhancing acquisition and successful, book built, placing: two RNS announcements today. This stock seemingly "off the radar"?

No official forecasts to date but my own forecast based on grossing up last year's acquisitions for a full year indicate somewhere in the region of £5m pretax;somewhat" back of the envelope "but thus it always was.
